Decided to give my aquarium stand one last coat of Spar Urethane to give the
top a nice sheen.
Wouldn't you know when it dried, there are tiny bubbles in the finish. What
the hell caused this? The first four coats did not do this!
It will be under the tank anyway, so I said piss on it. (insert joke here)
I think I stumbled into the knitting group. You guys sound like a bunch of
old hens. :)
Finish is firm (sanded well between coats), but has a minor bubble issue.
Probably put the last coat on too thick, but it might have been the new tack
cloth (different brand).
You can't tell by putting your hand on it. True spar varnish is intended for
boats. In particular masts. It is flexible (soft) so it won't crack and peel
off when being flexed. This quality makes it quite unsuitable for surfaces
that have something sitting on them. In time, the object will sink into the
finish. A lot of varnishes that are marketed as spar are not these days. You
can hope that you have one of those.
It was pre-destiny.
The only appropriate support for your fabulous salt-water display, featuring
denizens of the Oahu/Maui/Molokai vicinity is nothing other than:
"The _Don_Ho_ memorial salt-water fish-tank stand"
With that in mind, can you think of a more appropriate "finish"?
